Water on Mars

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Parts of Mars were once "drenched" with so much water that life could easily have existed there, NASA (news - web sites) said on Tuesday."

WASHINGTON - Mars may once have been a wet place where life could flourish, according to NASA (news - web sites) scientists who say a robot rover has found evidence that rocks on the Red Planet "were once soaked with liquid water."

I wonder what else might be necessary for life to easily exist on mars in addition to a suitable environment? Early reports indicated that the discovery of water (actually the signs that water existed) "were not direct evidence of life on mars." By implication the existence of water is indirect evidence?
